Comments:

This isn't really the Ectophiles' area of music, but I would recommend this album to any soft pop fan. The album is nicely produced and constructed, sweet and intimate-feeling. The guitar work is lovely, and Hans York's vocals and songwriting are a pleasing listen. (sophiagurley@hotmail.com)
